Rihanna’s all for it.

While New Yorkers relish the fact they can now imbibe in movie theaters, we Seattleites raise a glass to another drinking hallmark.

Yesterday the Washington State Liquor Control Board loosened up rules banning booze on stage. The new legislation allows "entertainers to drink while performing under several conditions." According to those stipulations mean "drinks would have to be served in nondescript containers, entertainers could not promote alcohol brands or drink specials, all consumption would have to be monitored by trained servers and all band members would have to be at least 21."

This should make for some entertaining sets.
